Weekend Shenanigans

My weekend was awesome.

Went to my first TEDx conference…
OxyTEDxIt was inspiring.

Got this awesome book at half the price…
Filmmaker's HandbookThis book is so informative!

Got invited to see Locker 13 & the Q&A afterward…
Locker13I really enjoyed this movie anthology. Plus, Jon Gries & Jason Marsden are in it!

Met Jon Gries…
Jon GriesHe made me pose like that. He’s so funny.

And had drinks with Jason Marsden & his friends…
Jason MarsdenI ordered a Shirley Temple!

The weekend ended with this awesome tweet from Jason.

I was flattered and floored by his compliments.

Life is awesome. And I thought nothing could beat 2013. I was wrong.

“Consequences”

I’m not sure if I ever mentioned this but my friends and I started an all-female comedy troupe back in 2011. Granted, we didn’t do anything until 2012 but the idea for the troupe originally began in 2011. Our name is Granny Cart Gangstas. Currently, we are on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and Tumblr. We just finished hosting a show on March 8, 2014 in honor of International Women’s Day. It was called “Bad Ass B!tches” and was held at Bindlestiff Studio.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it is when we get together and create. We all have a similar sense of humor so it’s easy for our minds to connect and come up with ideas for sketches, films, music, etc. Of course we also have our differences and sometimes, our ideas will clash but that’s where we collectively make decisions that we all eventually agree on.

Our latest video is a 90s music video parody inspired by Xscape’s “Understanding” video with original lyrics written by Andrea Almario. You can check it out here.

My favorite part of working on this video was how we all had these ridiculous ideas and the filmmakers who helped us film the video (Revelcade Entertainment, Project W Production, Torrid Productions & I Don’t Care Productions) trusted our decisions no matter what they were. We are planning on doing another show sometime this year so look out for information on our Facebook page!

Fanatical

Really been bombarded with Will Friedle stuff on the internet the past few months and I must say, I don’t hate it. Here are some things that any Will Friedle fan would love to see:

Jeff started following me on Twitter and when I went to his page, I saw this:

Will Friedle & William Daniels

Other photos I have found:

I’m sure this is from March 2013 when Will visited the GMW set with Rider. Ugh, this could’ve been me!

Also found another place to hear Will talking. Just Us Geeks Interview

And another one from Animation Fascination.

And this interview on The Brynne Project.

What I would give to be sitting right next to Friedle in that first picture. I wonder what he’s like in person. To be honest, I have heard/read so many interviews with Will that I almost feel like there is a script. I am starting to know his answer before he’s even said a word. They always ask pretty much the same questions.

“Oh hey Will, so uhhh, you were on Boy Meets World for a number of years and did some films. How did you end up getting into voice acting?”

“So you’re the voice of Bumblebee on Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters. How did that transpire?”

“What do you think of the Girl Meets World project? Are you going to be involved?”

“When you did Boy Meets World, did you ever think it was going to be this popular so many years later?”

Maybe I’m biased or jaded but if I had the chance to do an interview, I would ask the questions that I, as a fan, would really want to know.

1. Are you married?
2. If not, are you seeing anyone right now?
3. If not, what are you doing tonight? Can we hang out?
4. If I were to get in your car right now and your playlist comes on, what bands would I hear?
5. You’ve written some episodes of some cartoons, according to IMDB. What other forms of writing do you do and do you share them on the internet? I want to read your brain.
6. I bet the answer is no but do you have a blog under an alias, maybe Fred Wilhelm or something related to your name?
7. What kind of traveling do you like to do? Spelunking? Sandy beaches? Trekking through Europe?
8. When you write, what is your procrastination process like? Does it involve bubble wrap or youtube?
9. Would you ever attend conventions on any shows that you are on? I noticed you didn’t go to Comic Con when Thundercats was coming out. I know that through firsthand experience.
10. What is your favorite genre/film festival that you attend?
11. I hear you’re not very tech savvy. Have you ever made an online purchase?
12. What are you working on at the gym? Arms, obliques, quads, gluteus maximus or all of the above? *feels*

And those are the types of questions I would want to ask him. Not necessarily about the work he’s done but more about him. He’s an interesting duck there. I sincerely approve. Gotta go to the movies now, bye!
